ESS Healthcare IT

Exceptional Software Strategies (ESS) is pleased to announce a new contract for a commercial software development effort.  ESS is creating a Patient Engagement Portal in a collaborative effort between Craig Hospital of Denver, CO and Shepherd Hospital of Atlanta, GA.  Both hospitals provide extensive rehabilitation services for severe spinal cord and/or brain injury patients.  The Patient Engagement Portal provides patients and their caregivers the tools they need to help manage the patient’s healthcare with as much independence as possible once they are discharged and begin their life post-care.  The patient has complete control over their private portal pages allowing others access as needed.  The portal provides tools to manage their medications, equipment, supplies, documentation, providers, and training videos. This portal will be used by discharged patients of both hospitals.  ESS is excited to be moving into the healthcare arena where we see continued growth in the future! Continue Reading
